Briefs & Bookmarks: MP Shelly Glover, Magazines Canada, Corporate Knights
 
Shelly Glover
, St. Boniface MP in Manitoba, takes the reins from James Moore as Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages. In her new role she will guide the Canada Periodical Fund.

Magazines Canada announced the launch of its new Online Marketplace, which acts as a hub connecting publishers and magazines media suppliers. More information is available at the Magazines Canada website.

 
Were you surprised by Corporate Knight's win for best magazine at the 2013 NMAs? J-Source's Eric Mark Do looks at the mag's rise, its mission, and the criticism it faces.

Unbound presents its next Get Digital event, Creating Great Content, next week in Toronto. While we're on that track, check out Leigh Fowler's "Going Digital: 6 Reasons Why an Editor Should Blog."

The week's most talked about mag cover was Rolling Stone's treatment of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, which drew heavy criticism for "glamourizing" the young man. Our own Scott Bullock, however, didn't see what all the fuss was about. For more counterpoints, check out The New Yorker's "The Inconvenient Image of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev".
